What is the importance of dental hygiene in Edinburgh?

Dental hygiene is a form of dentistry which aims to prevent the development of oral diseases and infections (such as gum disease) which can be caused by bacteria within the mouth. Many of our patients may believe that dental hygiene simply consists of partaking in a dental regime at home (such as brushing and flossing) however this is not necessarily the case.

A few examples

A few common examples of standard hygiene treatments at our clinic consist of a ‘scale and polish’, which is the removal of plaque and tartar on the surface of the teeth, as well as tips on how to take care of your teeth at home.

What is a dental hygienist?

A dental hygienist is a dental healthcare professional who has had further academic and practical dental training within the specialist field of dental hygiene in Edinburgh. A dental hygienist may not be present at every dental practice in Edinburgh, however we are lucky enough to boast a hygienist as a part of our team. Despite standard dentists being able to deliver hygiene advice and treatments, our dental clinic believes that our hygienists can deliver a more superior level of care.
